I just got back from 4 days in Florida. The weather was the coldest they’ve had in 20 years. It was approximately 10 degrees or so warmer than here in CT. Since I was visiting my parents, and not going there for the weather, it was the source of many jokes and not a damper to the trip. Needless to say, my sister and I did A LOT of knitting.
In preparation for the trip, I, like many knitters spent more time planning my knitting projects than my clothes.
Here’s a look into my sister’s suitcase. She keeps clothes there, so she ONLY brought yarn.
I brought crocheted hats I’d been working on and off for a while and wanted to get them done and sent to their recipients. I disciplined myself and finished them first and mailed them off. Yay, me!
I began Amigurumi toys for the baby. I’m making an apple with a worm inside it. The pieces of the apple are not as stiff as I’d like. I might try again with a smaller hook.
I also began the “Joy” shawl by Koigu. It’s part of the Charlotte’s daughter’s Shawl pattern. This is a class I’m teaching at Knitting Central
Nancy was on a mission and solely worked on the “Vivian” sweater by Ysolda Teague
